Delivery time:
on your chosen day and location (to be found on your order confirmation) you can pick up your meal (ies), check the pickup times here.

At this moment you can pick up your meal at: Vondelgym Zuid and Active Club in Amsterdam. More and more pickup locations will follow.

If you want to have cutlery and a bag at your meal prep then you can. You can add this when paying your order. The bar staff of the pickup point is therefore informed that you will get a bag and cutlery. For environmental reasons we would like to reuse the bags. Could you think of this too?

Tessa’s cooks fresh and healthy meals that can be eaten as well as lunch and dinner. We always offer a meat, fish or vegan option. We get the inspiration from different kinds of countries and we try to create the most varied offer for you. Food must be healthy but also certainly varied and delicious!

We try to put together the meal prep as varied as possible. A lot of use is made of fresh vegetables, legumes, whole-grain products and tasty sauces that are not too high in calories and fat. There is always a fish, meat or vegan option. We try to check the size of the portions so that not too much food is thrown away. In addition, we also take into account the right balance of carbohydrates, proteins and fats per meal.

Sugar is sugar. We mainly get the sugars from our vegetables, fruit and unsweetened dairy products such as low-fat yogurt or vegetable yogurt. The advantage of these products is that in addition to fructose (fruit sugar), they have many more important nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and fibers.

Cooking is done 5 days a week and we visit the pick-up points with fresh meals three times a week. We do not in any way extend the shelf life of meals.

We use organic products as well as non-organic products. We mainly release the focus of our products on animal friendliness and anti-biotics. In the field of pesticides, our vegetables comply with the values of the European Union. Our products are microbiologically tested every harvest. We work closely with our suppliers.
